Hello! Do u think Obi and Shirayuki have any chance of being the endgame pairing? I just finished read the manga and I'm so into them, but I feel like their chances are so low ;-; btw I love your fics <3

I’ve answered this a few times over the last year, but the gist of my answer is: yes, I think there’s a chance. Do I think it’s more likely than the main pairing? Not at this point. There’s plenty of hints to point the mangaka might go that way, but there’s honestly no way to tell.

Does that have any impact on the way I ship? No. Ultimately it doesn’t matter what ends up being canon, I still like Obi and Shirayuki as pair better than Zen and Shirayuki.

Did/do Zach love Courtney at some point ?

This is such an interesting question. Hmm, I think like Silvia, Zach found comfort and found Courtney easy. Someone like Zach really doesn’t just learn to love like that, especially in a selfless way. Courtney allowed him to have his way and had a home waiting for him when he came out so I don’t think Zach ever loved Courtney. 

Tiaras at the Vatican

I’m excited to start a new series showing tiaras that were worn when meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.  They were only worn on the most formal of occasions but as the dress code has become increasingly informal with each successive pope, tiaras are no longer worn.  I’ll try to do them more or less in chronological order but I’m still finding new pictures so I’m sure my nice order with fall by the wayside.  Also, this is by no means all of the tiaras that have ever been worn at the Vatican just the ones I could find pictures of.

You can follow the series at the Vatican Tiaras tag.

As you’ll see the last person to wear a tiara at the Vatican was Queen Silvia of Sweden in May 1991.  She held out long after the others because the next most recent one I could find was Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom in 1980.
